Heroic Age Checklist



So after a few months of observing both DC Comics and Marvel Comics' approach at bringing their lines back to the realm of normalcy (read non-dark, depressing or hopeless) I finally settled on Marvel.

Here is the checklist of books I'm planning to get (which are all of the OFFICIAL Heroic Age books).

The hard part will be narrowing the list down to a manageable line-up of monthlies following the event. I know ATLAS will be on that list.

What is interesting is that when I first began reading comics around 1982 Marvel's monthly comics totaled just over thirty titles. Now they put out that many in a WEEK! And with prices that baffle the mind. How can a 60-cent comic 1n 1982 be 3.99 in 2010 when a 50-cent can of soda is 75-cents now. It seems like nothing else has had as much of a markup in the last thirty years as comics.

I better stop or I'll be going off on a tangent... Will save that for a future post.
So to proceed... Here's the Heroic Age books to get:
